How to add your bot to servers?

If you want to add bots to servers you first need to create a bot, which we showed in the previous article. If you follow those steps you can easily create a bot.

Before you are actually able to see your bot in your own or other servers, it needs to be added using a special invite link that can be created using your bot application’s client ID.

Invite Links

Here is an sample invite link:

“https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=123456789012345678&scope=bot”

You need to understand the structure of this link.

  • The first part of this link is Discord’s standard structure for authorizing an OAuth2 application for entry to a Discord server.
  • The second part that says “client_id=” is used to specify which application you want to authorize. You have to replace this part with your client’s ID in order to create a valid invite link.
  • The third part which says “scope=bot” specifies that you want to add this application as a Discord bot.

How to create and use your own invite link?

You have to replace the client_id parameter with your client’s ID in order to produce your invite link as mentioned above in the points.

In order to find your App’s ID, navigate back to “My Apps” page under the “Applications” section once again and click on your bot application.

Enter your app’s ID into the link template and then access it in your browser.

Then, you have to select the server you want to add it to and click on the “Authorize” button. It should be kept in mind that you are going to need the “Manage Server” permission on a server in order to be able to add your bot there. This should then present you a confirmation message.

Now you have completed the process of adding your bot to your Discord server. It should show up in your server’s member list somewhat like this.

What is Slowmode and how to set it up?

It can be pretty exciting to find out that your Discord channel is active and a lot of people are taking part in the discussion. However, sometimes you may want to give some chill to your channel and for that, there is a special mode available called the Slowmode.

When you enable the Slowmode on your channel, then it will limit the number of messages that a user can send in a channel based on a timed cooldown.

Discord SlowmodeAnd you also have the option to customize the time limit anywhere from 5 seconds to two minutes.

However, you should know that this feature is only available within an individual channel. You can’t apply this feature on a server basis.

How to set up Slowmode feature?

To set up the slowmode feature, follow these steps:

  1. Head over to your Channel Settings by clicking on the cog icon to Edit Channel > Overview.
  2. You will see the Slowmode option there along with a slider next to it from where you can adjust the time interval between the messages.
  3. By default, the Slowmode feature is off, but you can turn it on by moving the slider next to it in order to turn on this feature.
  4. You will need at least Manage Channel permission to enable this feature.

This restriction feature will not be applied to you if you have the Manage Channel, Manage Messages, Administrator Permission, or you are the Owner of the server.

Indications

If a user is restricted by this feature, then there is a clear cut indication that the user is currently being restricted and how much he will have to wait in order to send the next message.Slowmode iOS

These indications are available on the desktop app along with iOS and Android apps.

How to create a Discord Server?

As you may know that Discord is perfect for chatting with team members, seeing who is playing online and catching up on text conversations you may have missed. Discord makes it easier for games to chat and communicate with each other and for that, you need a server.

You can always join a server if you have the invite code or URL, but you also get the option to create your server anytime and invite your friends to that server.
